The Major League Baseball trading deadline is just two days away and according to a report from PlayerLine.com, the Colorado Rockies have been evaluating players from the New York Mets, Los Angeles Angels, and St. Louis Cardinals.
The Mets come to as no surprise as they recently inquired about Rockies All-Stars Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez. Chris Cotillo came out with an article just the other day that it would take an ‘offer of the century‘ to acquire the prized shortstop who is currently on the 15-day disabled list. Players that the Rockies could be scouting from the Mets include Noah Syndergaard, Brandon Nimmo, Rafael Montero, Dilson Herrera, and Steven Matz.
The Angels on the other hand is a bit of a changeup but the team is looking for pitching help where they could be linked to starter Jorge De La Rosa. JDLR is on his last year of a four-year, $42.5 million dollar deal where he will be making $9-million this season. I don’t expect the Rockies to trade the veteran as they will likely try to pick up his option for 2015.
The Cardinals are another team with familiarity as they have been linked to Troy Tulowitzki as well. The Rockies aren’t inclined to dealing Tulo this season but the offseason could be hectic in the Mile High City.
